Small Bathroom Tricks + Tour

Blank Instagram Post.png

Hello lovey human beans! I have a youtube video that just went up with a whole apartment tour but I wanted to go into depth on the bathroom a bit more because I never thought we would survive sharing a small bathroom together on our first go at living together but it has been really ok!

I love how our little space turned out and here are a few things that helped make it work:

Storage can be simple

Don’t overthink it! Pick up dollar store containers for your drawers it helps so much just to separate items out! I also really love using amazon for mine and I have linked some down below that I use in my drawers and in my makeup basket! Also we were lucky to have this sink with drawers that the in-laws picked out and it really helps that we didn’t have to build in spaces!

Maximize space

Above our closet we had a bunch of space so instead of letting it go to waste I found some baskets from target that make it work functional but is also simple and aesthetic! I also used the back of the toilet as some storage for a diffuser and my little basket that holds my cotton pads for my face cleansing.

Add personal touches

Jon and I really love plants and so to us that was the perfect touch. We added in a fake plant that I put on a stand that I found on Etsy as well as a fresh aloe plant with a $1 potter from Home Depot! I also have a little dish that was a gift that I love to put my rings in at night.

I hope you guys enjoyed a new type of post! Thanks to Brooklinen for giving me the inspiration with their GORGEOUS fluffy towels! I just did and IG post for them and you guys can use the code ‘emmaw20’ for $20 off and free shipping!

Here is the Thing...

IMG_2980-min.jpg

Life is such a ride. Somedays I feel so lucky and some days I feel so empty and I wish I was being dramatic. I have already hammered to death what all has happened in this past month but being on the other side of so much change is leaving me a bit speechless. I opened up this blogpost document just to get as much off my chest as I could - so here we go.

Moving sucks. I mean the physical lifting boxing and packing sucks, but even more painful is the stomach sinking feeling I have even thinking about my “old” life in my old home and realizing how much that makes me feel. I am really sad lately. I miss Denver more than I thought I would and to be honest, Tulsa is not as perfect as I wanted it to be. The problem is it didn’t change - I just didn’t. I am still me and to think that I could have changed into someone else while driving across state lines is not realistic. I am working on finding a way to feel like me in my new home.

Meanwhile… I am also planning a wedding that is 11 months away…

but seems to require an email or decision almost daily. I am trying my hardest to keep Jon involved but at the end of the day I find myself saying yes or no or emailing my Mom begging her to decide or research for me. Fortunately we hired some kick ass planners (Table 6 Productions) and I am really so grateful for them. I never wanted a big or fussy wedding but try as I might I am still such a lover of weddings at heart and that was unrealistc. Either way I am really excited for it to all come together.

Marriage* is hard…

I guess the last thing is to expand on my recent IG post here. I mentioned that ‘marriage’ is hard and even though we aren’t married - moving in together, to a new place and being engaged - feels pretty close. I truly love Jon and wouldn’t change him or our relationship for the world but SHIT. This is hard work to always being putting us first while still trying to find our new places in the world. I am so hopeful though that we will grow together and not apart over the next many many years to come.

So that is the ramble, I hope you enjoyed learning the inner monologue of my Sunday (lol). I love talking to you guys about these things so message me on IG or here and we’ll talk!!

ALSO should I do a tutorial on these waves?? LMK!

Dallas Stay at the Adolphus Hotel

IMG_2937.jpg

24 hours of luxury & history

A peek into our stay with the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas

We had the best time last weekend in Dallas. We were originally going for the Thomas Rhett concert since it is only a four hour drive from Tulsa, but the adopts reached out and we couldn’t believe our luck! We were able to stay in the most beautiful hotel that is SO full of history. According to our bartender (whom I loved) the hotel was built in 1912 and even contains a baby grand piano that was originally a twin but the other one went down with the titanic on the way to the hotel !! so crazy.

Current day though there is so much to see and do right in the hotel. They have an incredible rooftop pool, spa, restaurants, coffee and more. We had brunch at the City Hall restaurant and you all NEED to go to try the cinnamon roll French toast. Overall it was such a nice break and much needed for my mental health.

Oh! and did you see our buddy who came too - the hotel is pet friendly!!
